is the militias in libya with all the guns and weapons were equipped while the united states led from behind to do nothing. something one of the lessons is when there is this kind of thing, we should be in there, helping our friends in this case establish law and order. the public reaction in libya, the killing of the ambassador is frankly very sympathetic to the united states. and i think we should be taking advantage of that. lou: we didn't like the results of the election in egypt, but they also had an election, they also had change direction, again from a direction that the united states is not particularly enamored with. nonetheless, they had changed the character of their government in the direction of the nation. what should we do there as well? >> well, i think that we should be a lot clearer about what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. it was unacceptable for the president of egypt come to the united states into the case of sitting in jail because of the 1993 world world trade center bombing. it is certainly unacceptable for president mohammed morsi of egypt basically equivocate a
. there's no way you can shut down outrageous speech in the country of the united states, it's going to happen, but if the responsibility of responsible officials in egypt and other countries throughout the world to take actions to protect embassies and they are the ones who are responsible, and the extremists sure -- stirring up the crowds are responsible. talking about the video really is to distract from the real problem. gerri: you have a lot of experience in these proceedings as deputy secretary of defense under george w. bush. people staid it's bush's fault the arab world is in unrest today. do you agree? how do you respond? >> i don't at all. look, these extremists were breeding in the arab world for years under horrible dictators. 9/11 happened with basically before george w. bush even appeared, and i believe in fact that the dictatorships of the arab world gave credit the to the extremists who attacks the governments for denying freedom to their people. sooner or later, those governments collapse both because of age and also, frankly, because ashes want freedom as well, and
a national security standpoint in my memory but the threat is thread is not outside the united states at this time. at their inability to get their act together and in my view the greatest risk we face from national security standpoint. we want to drill in on this today and i want to say a special thank you to these remarkable leaders who have decided, as talking with chairman gray and he said he has been spending too much time on the outside avoiding trouble and now he realizes the country needs to get in the middle of it to make trouble and i'm thankful he is willing to do something like that. let me turn it to sam subeight. one thing i will say when you work for a senator you work your whole life for them and the advantage of coming to csis as i get paid, so he is the chairman of the board. i turn it over to you. >> thank you john, thank you very much. at least i never did to you what my former senate colleague did to george tenet when he was head of the cia. he used them call them up and make his hotel reservations around the world. [laughter] so i'm not that bad, john. thanks joh
to us by the congress of the united states which represents the american people. >> what does that mean in terms of numbers? >> 2% growth. >> are we at two? kevin was very careful, he went 1.5 to 1.75. >> that's very precise. >> i want basis points. >> decimal points is silly stuff, come on, joe. >> i know. >> there is positive growth, it's just not robust and the key point, it's not enough to create the jobs we need in this country. now, i argue and i argue forcefully, i'll give a speech on this tomorrow night here in new york, the reason we have so much uncertainty is not just uncertainty about europe and uncertainty about the slowdown in china, these are important things. the real uncertainty stems from what are my taxes going to be? what kind of spending pattern also come out of the federal government, how do i deal with this explosion of regulatory morass we have coming out of washington. how do you budget whether you are exxon or a little bitty 20-person company, how does the woman who runs that company or the man who runs that company budget when they have no idea what their cost
, the homeowner would say how could something like this happen in the united states? mikey and chantell sackett our land owners. they bought in 2005 a half acre parcel of land in idaho on which they planned to build their dream home. they obtained necessary building permits, and they started construction in their home in the spring of 2007 by putting on to their lot a bit of gravel. three days after that, the epa and army corps of engineer agents came on to their property and told them that they had to stop building their dream home because they were violating the clean water act. when sackett asked the epa to the court to provide some sort of written explanation as to why the need a federal permit to build their home, they were given the explanation in the form of a compliance order issued by the epa under the authority of the clean water act. this compliance order charged the sacketts of having violated the clean water act and immediately restore their property to its alleged status come and make available to the epa at any moment access to their property and to the business records. and if t
? >> the united states military says most joint operations with the americans and afghan soldiers are going to be suspended until further notice. and mika, this is horrifying when you look at the fact that u.s. policy makers have been justifying continuing this war in afghanistan based on this -- this -- this lie that we're going to be able to train them and help these people who are shooting and killing our troops, help them run the country. >> the longest war and for the longest time no one who is in charge or who knows about these issues can tell us what winning means. the move comes amid an alarming string of insider attacks. the latest on sunday that left four american soldiers dead. yesterday, nato announced it was also scaling back joint operations with afghan security forces. the joint combat patrols are seen as a critical part of the u.s. plan to withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of 2014. and just a few hours ago, in the capital of kabul, nine people were killed when a suicide bomb rammed a car packed with explosives into to a mini bus believed to be carrying foreign workers.
in issued this statement -- "it's shocking that a candidate for president of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half of the american people view themselves as victims entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their lives. it's hard to serve as president for all americans when you've disdainfully written off half the nation." in a late-night news conference, romney responded. >> well, you know, it's not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff in response to a question, and i'm sure i could state it more clearly and in a more effective way, but it's a message which i'm going to carry and continue to carry, which is, look, the president's approach is attractive to people who are not paying taxes because, frankly, my discussion about lowering taxes isn't as attractive to them. and therefore, i'm not likely to draw them into my campaign as effectively as those who are in the middle. >> let me britain in anne kornblut for "the washington post" and a politics reporter for roll
the past two years the united states increased its production of crude oil and natural gas liquids by 1.3 million barrels a day. by the end of this year it may be two million barrels a day. that is on a base of five. david: that is enough to move the price in the market? >> that is i am men's. it can -- immense. it can move the price in the market. liz: meaning more energy jobs available. what are the numbers? the obama administration said 600, 700,000 jobs could be created. do you feel that is a ballpark figure? >> that the number for natural gas, 600,000 is for natural gas. oil is probably another two million jobs. combination of these two technologies can bring back more than a third of the jobs that were lost in the great recession. liz: but there would be training involved. just doesn't happen instantaneously, does it? >> no. it happens over time, over two, three, 4-year period. but if you look at the united states economy overall, for every 100, $115,000 of gdp we get one job in this country. for every million barrels of oil you import, you don't, you save, for five million barrel
in mexico, more than 130 inmates are on the run. police are blocking roads leading to the united states after a major prison break. they're offering a $15,000 reward as well for the fugitives who escaped from a prison about 150 miles from san antonio. police say they were able to burrow through a tunnel. >>> atlanta, nashville, new york city and the possibility of tornadoes. we'll get right to meteorologist rob marciano in atlanta. how are things looking this morning? >> wet to start and stormy to finish is the way you implied it as well. tennessee yesterday over 6 inches of rainfall, knoxville seeing 3 inches. that's a record. in places in arkansas they needed the rain. there were areas in alabama that saw swift water rescues taking place because of the flooding. heavy rain from pittsburgh through charleston. this is shifting towards the east. it will get towards the i-95 corridor from d.c. to baltimore, starting to slide into philadelphia right now in through new york city. even coastal flooding possible with winds as we get later on into the day. here comes the heavy rain. the foreca
the office of president of the united states would so dismiss all of the people he is sworn to serve if he should be fortunate, which certainly i believe he won't, to succeed in this quest. it is really disheartening to hear him say that. >> congressman, you worked alongside dr. edward zeigler who, of course, developed the highly effective head start program. i had the great privilege of interviewing dr. zeigler. that has been so crucial in helping children in challenging family circumstances, but given mr. romney's contempt for half the population, i guess it's no surprise that his running mate, paul ryan, his running mate's budget would slash head start to pieces. >> it would slash head start. it slashes college education and tuition. it slashes medicaid as well, which also hurts the very seniors also that they claim they're going to protect. this cynical nature of this has had even the bishops joining with the nuns and saying that this is an immoral budget that he has put forward because of how it decimates the poorest amongst us. i mean, dr. zeigler would be amazed by all of this, and
of the united states would go behind closed doors and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half the american people view themselves as victims. romney held an impromptu press conference in california to respond. >> the president believes in what i described as a government centered society. it's not elegantly stated. let me put it that way. i am speaking off the cuff in response to a question. and i am sure i could state it more clearly in a more effective way. >> reporter: karen travers, abc news, washington. >> i suspect he will be stating it in more different ways for days to come. >> exactly. i am troubled by the fact that if you are elected president, you do have to make -- remarks that are, off the cuff, you have to be pretty diplomatic, you have meetings with heads of state. >> sure. >> and you have to choose your words carefully. so, i think in today's age when you know everything is being videotaped, to sort of say something like that, even to private, private group, private donors, and basically writing off 50% of the country, you intend to lead. it is very troubling a
grow increasingly dangerous and hostile to the united states. bill: words from secretary gates were even stronger. chuck nash, retired u.s. navy captain, fox news military analyst. captain, good morning to you and welcome back here. >> good morning. bill: what gates calls the cuts at the end of the december, mindless cuts set to take effect. what do you make of that? >> essentially what we have ngress before it adjourned set up a doomsday scenario only they told everybody. if we don't come to agreement on the cuts what will happen we'll blow the whole thing up, we'll blow up the world. it is akin to the cleavon little character in "blazing saddles", saying if you don't back off, he gets it. guess what? the guns to the head. they will let this thing counts down, go to zero and blow up. and so, it is one of those things you want it real bad and you will get it real bad. bill: what gates says after the election in november, i'm using his words now, whatever adults remain in the two political parties will make compromises necessary to put the country back in order. he is not messing aro
cameras, now stop sign cameras. wait until you see this. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." >>> a week after the bloody attack on the u.s. consulate in libya, the white house is facing a growing backlash. should there have been more security given possible threats tied to the 9/11 anniversary? and was the attack which killed the ambassador and three other americans premeditated or a spontaneous eruption of rage over an anti-muslim film? our white house correspondent dan lothian is standing by. but first to libya where we have stunning new video and witness accounts of the attack and the last moments of ambassador chris stevens. cnn senior international correspondent arwa damon is in benghazi. >> reporter: this is the first thing fahud says he saw and filmed at the consulate compound. the cafeteria building up in flames. it was shortly before midnight september 11th. the smoke so thick the compound's main house is barely visible. and then this. after breaking through window men shou
people will act a certain way. but if you want to be the president of the united states, you cannot do something like that. >> stephanie: you saw the picture, that was perfect of him smirking. like he just nailed it. >> yeah in the last month the democrats have won the candid photo trophy. and myth walking away from the stage going oh i really got him that time. and all of the reporters are going jesus god. >> stephanie: remind what you called scott walker -- >> that's a twice-elected goggle eyes homuculous. >> stephanie: thank you. thank you. that was it. thank you, charlie pierce you say it better than i do, mostly because you wrote it. but obviously the judge overturned his union bashing law, but as you say because they are in charge. >> yeah, that one is not going to last, and the people of wisconsin, i'm not all together happy with the ruling. they have voted twice now, and now they live with it. >> stephanie: of course he is a liberal activist judge as all judges are when they don't rule your way. >> yeah but that's the kind of back and forth i expected. i'm n
